This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Saruman moves to Bag End with Grima. The hobbits eventually kick him out. Saruman kicks Grima out of anger. Grima snaps and kills Saruman in Bag End. The Hobbits then killed Grima. Grima kills Saruman at his home at Orthanc. He falls and is impaled on a spiked wheel. Grima is then shot and killed by an arrow from Legolas.
   The sons of Elrond, Elladan and Elrohir joined with thirty of the Dúnedain led by Halbarad. They met up with Aragorn and fought beside him for the remainder of the story. This doesn't happen.
   Aragorn brought the banner Arwen made on the journey from Rivendell. Elrond brought the reforged sword of Isildur instead of the banner.
   Aragorn and the Army of the Dead take over the Umbar ships. Allies of Gondor are loaded onto the ships to join the Battle of Pelennor. The Army of the Dead come to fight in the Battle.
   Merry is taken on the horse of Eowyn. He doesn't realize who it is until she reveals her identity to the Witch king of Angmar. Merry knows it is Eowyn right away.
